wow well that's a gay setup and i'd differently look into something that has flanges rather then clamps. the two piece design I like because you can get the pipe closer to the body so less hanging down saying to everyone "HEY I HAS NO CATS GIVES ME A $1300 citation" like what my old mac h pipe did lol. **** hung low as balls no matter what I did.
Thats the same prob I'm having with my pypes piece of ****!
Mine hang like 6-8" below the pockets where they're supposed to go. Pypes are so cheap they even skimped out on the horseshoe type hangers that slide into the trans x-member... I have the xpipe and tailpipes that go from the xpipe back to the bumper. It took serious modifications to get them not to rub the tires... One of the hangers was put on sideways and had to be heated and bent into place. The other was about 3" off and had to be torched off and a new one welded on.
Overall the pypes setup has to be the worst out there! I love how they include the big warning in the box that tells you if you modify their inferior product, you void your warranty.
BTW Out here in Vegas they really don't care about noise and smog.. Only clark county (where Las Vegas is) has smog check, the neighboring counties do not... Its good to have friends...
